Many prayers Ted to you and your family Every time I saw Mindy she always had a glow about her and always smiling
I was stunned to hear of the passing of Mindy. I was her 6th grade teacher at North Nim. in my second year of teaching and I have such great memories of her. She was such a nice girl. I saw her probably 10 years ago or so and we talked about the old days and just had a nice visit. Mindy’s family has my deepest sympathy at this very sad time.
I did not know Mindy very well in high school but I got a chance to see her again at a small classmates reunion one evening. I hardly knew anybody there and she went out of her way to make me feel welcome. By the end of the evening I felt like we were best friends. She was such a sweet and caring person. She would always stop and talk whenever I saw her after that. My deepest sympathies goes out to her family.
I’m so sorry for your loss. We were friends since school and done alot of things together growing up. She was a beautiful, amazing, caring person. She loved her family and friends very much. Mindy you was definitely taken away from us way to soon and will always remember the memories we had. I know you’ll always be watching over the loves of your life and until we meet again..
May your memories comfort you at this tragic time. I was so sad to hear of Mindy’s passing,she had a smile for everyone.I know she will be missed but not forgotten
Sheri & family, Today and always may loving memories Bring you strength comfort and peace . Their memories remain in our hearts . They walk beside us every day . With heartfelt sympathy love Barb (Cornea) Lockhart
For the many that loved Mindy, do not cry for her death; celebrate her life and share a memory about her to someone you love
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. She always was smiling and she had a glow all around her
It’s taken me a few weeks to reconcile Mindy’s passing. I had the honor of leading Mindy for 3 years and in that time I was able to witness her deep compassion, her infectious smile and her HUGE heart.
A wonderful, courageous, loving, beautiful soul l who will be deeply missed.
